Waiting restrictions

Waiting restrictions that are indicated by yellow lines apply to the pavement and verge as well as the road.

Where there is a single yellow line, you may stop to load or unload (unless there are also loading restrictions) or while passengers get in or out of your vehicle. The time that the restriction applies is shown on a nearby plate.

Double yellow lines mean no waiting at any time.

For other road markings, the times that the restrictions apply are shown on nearby plates or on entry signs to controlled parking zones. If no days are shown on the signs, the restrictions are in force every day, including Sundays and Bank Holidays.

Waiting restrictions are supported by a legal document called a Traffic Regulation Order (TRO).
